This policy is valid as of May 26, 2014
Consumer protection is important to me and to the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”). The FTC Act prohibits “unfair or deceptive acts or practices” in online advertising, marketing, and sales, which this blog partakes in because I will write articles and reviews of products and services that are either given to me to review or that I purchase myself. Either way, this may or may not contribute to your choice to consume. That said, here is Charmnomgo’s full disclosure policy:
This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me, Gina Mam. From time to time, I may highlight writing or photographs from an independent writer or blogger. I will reference and cite all appropriate sources. All opinions are my own and I will fully disclose whether a company is compensating me for the review at the bottom of each blog entry. If the review is based on a personal purchase for review, I will expressly disclose this at the bottom of each blog entry. For questions about this blog, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
I may accept form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions through this blog. I may accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation from companies and organizations.
I abide by word of mouth marketing standards. I believe in honesty of relationship, opinion and identity. I am respectful to the companies, products, and services in the related blog article. The compensation I receive may influence the advertising content, topics or posts made in this blog. I will be free to write regarding any poor experience I have with the product or service in the related blog article. I will clearly identify content, advertising space, or post as paid or sponsored content.
As the owner of this blog, I may be compensated to provide my opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. I will write my views and opinions on this blog and review and edit every blog entry if there is a collaborator or a joint project. If I claim or appear to be an expert on a certain topic, product, or service, I am endorsing a product or service that I believe in, based on my experience, and because the related company, product, or service is worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest.
